Happy Recap: 2017 Season - Game 15 - Phillies (4) at Mets (5) - Bruce Powers Mets To Win

Jay Bruce homered twice and drove in five runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the eighth inning that sent the New York Mets to a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies and halted their four-game losing streak Wednesday night.

Philadelphia Phillies v New York MetsNew York trailed 2-0 with two outs in the sixth before Bruce lined a three-run homer off frustrated starter Vince Velasquez. Philadelphia pulled even in the eighth, but Yoenis Cespedes singled leading off the bottom half and Bruce connected again, this time against Edubray Ramos (0-2).

The two homers were strikingly similar, line drives to straightaway right field that landed on the protective netting above seats just behind the fence.

New York, which lost first baseman Lucas Duda and catcher Travis d'Arnaud to injuries during the game, has not dropped five straight since late 2015.

Hansel Robles (3-0) struck out his only batter, and Addison Reed earned his fourth save. Reed allowed a sacrifice fly to pinch-hitter Daniel Nava after Freddy Galvis tripled, then struck out Cesar Hernandez to end it.

Rookie right-hander Robert Gsellman gave up three runs and six hits in seven-plus innings. He became the first Mets starter to pitch into the eighth this year.

Velasquez, still looking for his first win since last July, was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh. He helped himself with a RBI single in the fifth through a drawn-in infield.

Philadelphia got a RBI groundout from slumping cleanup hitter Maikel Franco in the fourth and tied it in the eighth when Aaron Altherr blooped a double and scored on Michael Saunders' bloop single.
